Dear Honda

April 21, 2010

Your cup-holders suck. I don’t want to be the stereotypical female and have cup-holders among my top-three features required in a car, but in truth, aside from the engine and the seat-belt, what else is more important?

I have been in many Honda models, and I have identified this weakness in all of them almost immediately. Your problem is you seem to ignore the second part of the description: the “holder” part. Your holders hold nothing. If the driver must, in fact, hold their cup at every turn, then your cup-holders seem to be not only useless, but dangerous.

Even though I should have known better, I was disgruntled yet again when your “cup-holder” failed and spilled my giant diet coke all over my car within an hour of starting my 8-hour drive this morning. I’m bitter. I got four hours of sleep last night and I needed that coke.

So, Honda, you can’t fix my road trip, but you can take my advice and design some real cup-holders. I have every confidence you can take down Toyota with drivers that can drive easy knowing they have refreshment at their fingertips.

You’re welcome.

    Why don’t you tell us all how you really feel? ha, ha. However, I definitely agree I need a sturdy cup holder in my car in order to support my daily iced coffee habit.

    We Toyota drivers wouldn’t have a clue about your problem. Our cars have fantastic cupholders. Everywhere. Big ones. 🙂 Have a better trip.
